on fiscal matters, strong on defense, but plays down their social issues. someone with charisma who can win the support of people on the other side of the 50 yard line. i'm talking about a ronald reagan for the 21st century. i know the party is unlikely to find such a candidate, male or female. but unless they do, they're stuck in second place nationally. they can't beat hillary clinton. that's for sure, not with the rogue elements they've got joining them in their huddle. not where the candidate only reads the words like romney did, well enough to get the nomination, but not well enough, did you notice, to actually be picked as a president. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being was.

been around for 100 years. they're the most popular guns for hunting, target shooting, self-defense. despite this fact, congress banned the manufacture and sale of hundreds of semi-automatic firearms and magazines from '94 to 2004. independent studies, including one from the clinton justice department, proved that had no impact on lowering crime. when it comes to background checks, let's be honest, background checks will never be universal because criminals will never submit to them. there are a lot of things that can be done and we ask you to join with us. the nra is made up of millions of americans who support what works. the immediate protection of all, not just our schoolchildren, is what is needed and swift surround punishment of criminals who misuse guns and fixing our mental health system. >> lapierre has been arguing for gun rights for a very long time. and he was around for the first nationwide assault weapons ban, which expired eight years ago. we have tape, actually, back from the early 1990s of him and senator dianne feinstein, who introduced a proposal for a new ban on
does nothing, the cuts take effect. republicans don't want defense cuts, but they might be willing to stomach those cuts because domestic programs would also get slashed, including medicare. and that's what republicans really want. let's turn to barney frank, former massachusetts congressman, with us tonight here on "the ed show." congressman, good to have you with us. >> thank you, ed. >> you bet. republicans are trying to change their image here. is it going to work? your thoughts on what you just heard. >> no, because they're not going to be allowed simply to do the thing paul ryan did. he talked about entitlement. people should understand when he talks about cutting entitlements, entitlements is republican for social security and medicare. the two most successful anti-poverty programs in american history, two great accomplishments which substantially reduce poverty among older people and created the possibility for most americans of a comfortable, not a wealthy, not an affluent, but a reasonably comfortable retirement. the other flaw is when ryan says, well, these cuts are to p
, especially on what? defense. the pentagon spent almost 13% more than normal in the third quarter, but at the end of the year, defense spending suddenly dropped 22%. that's the biggest drop in defense spending since 1972. the private sector did its part to grow the economy. families worked hard. they spent some money. businesses made some investments. but government spending dipped. and pulled the entire economy down with it. less spending caused less growth. but republicans like paul ryan keep saying, well, these cuts are going to boost the growth. >> we're not preaching austerity. we're preaching growth and opportunity. our job, our goal is to prevent and preempt austerity so we can get back to growth. >> really? countries like greece, italy and spain and france have done exactly what ryan wants this country to do. they cut government spending to pay off their debt. now the eurozone has posted record unemployment and poverty. we are facing $85 billion in automatic spending cuts on march 1st. we probably shouldn't trust republicans who think austerity is the best way to go for th

president. one is ted cruz, the guy who opposes both kerry for state and chuck hagel for defense. how interesting. two people who have fought for their country, the vietnam war, been awarded medals for their service. ted cruz was never serving in the military, but insists these two gutsy veterans don't deserve the office to which the president has appointed them. don't you just love these people? they don't like the military enough to join it, they dump on people who served and have the nerve to ask for more war. ask the typical hawk what he thought the war was looking back, a bad idea. putting our marines into lebanon, somalia. my appearance experience is they like them all. not only that, but they are always, as i said, ready for another. iraq, yes. afghanistan, yes. iraq again, yes. iran, let's go. why do people listen to these types? why the knee-jerk salute every time one of these armchair hawks itches for another conflict? i'm glad we have kerry now as the same reason i'm glad there was an anwar sadat, a yitzhak rabin. and out of the disastrous suze campaign. i'm glad the h
not carry over here. >> let me ask each of you about the cut-backs on defense. this seems crucial to me. i don't know if you saw the "wall street journal" had an op-ed saying why the french can't fight. provocative title and they backed it up with the facts that they pulled. they have a point of view but they note that the french are deploying into mali right now with barely half the vehicles that they had four years ago. there have been so many cut-backs in the french military. barney frank always used to tell me they're freeloading off the u.s. everyone freeloads off the u.s. military but if we start cutting back dramatically are we going to end up in a situation where we can't fight a traditional war, the only thing worse than having to be the country that bears the security risk for the whole world is not being able to do it? >> let me jump in here because quite frankly, that goes to the essence of why we have a government and our senior leadership as we discuss these fiscal cuts needs to get to the heart of why we have a government in the first place. if you go back to the preamble of
anti-government anger, now, egypt's defense minister warns the entire country may be nearing collapse, raising concerns the army may be called in to restore order. nbc's ayman mohyeldin is live for us in cairo. when i heard that warning from the egyptian military considering the past of egypt, was that the first warning sign that hey, the military may step in here regardless of whether president morsi asks or not? >> well, this is actually the second time in about a month and a half that they've issued these stern warnings. if you remember in early december, when there was the constitutional crisis when president morsi essentially gave himself unprecedented powers. that also triggered a wave of street protests. the military tried to keep tear distance from the politics but that's why they also are the subject of so much speculation that people are calling on them to intervene sometimes. and people are also afraid they may not just sit by and watch this political difference rip this country apart. the comments that came yesterday were extremely alarming because the defense minister sai
